    Order of off-road mods

    I live in Colorado and want to start tackling some more challenging stuff. I wanted to get people's thoughts on what the essential protection would be. I already have tuffant steel wheels, Cooper AT3 E-range tires, and an IID tool to add a bit of lift. I carry a shovel, compressor, recovery...

    Defender 130 is out!

    Well, being marketed at least!

    Aluminum crossovers exist now! (maybe)

    Was bored browsing the jaguar forum (same engine, after all) and came across this recent thread announcing aluminum crossover pipes. https://www.jaguarforums.com/forum/f-type-x152-72/aluminum-cooling-pipes-finally-258775/ I've never heard of the vendor, but interesting nonetheless... it does...

    Hitch storage

    I could have sworn there was a little molded place to store the plug-in hitch on the left side of the car with a little strap to hold it. But I don’t seem to have it on my 2016. Am I mistaken, or was this decontented or swiped by previous owner?

    "State of Charge" from IID tool

    2016 LR4 here. Shouldn't some of these measuring blocks be available? I’m particular, I could have sworn estimates state of charge was available in my 2012.

    Date code on LR batteries?

    Was trying to figure out when my battery was last replaced. Am I missing something or is there just no mfg date present? Or maybe on the side so I need to pull it out to look? Got the vehicle 6 months ago and PO had everything done at the dealer, so it could be original (6 years?!) … or not.

    Has anyone put Pirelli Scorpion Winter tires on their LR4 ?

    Sold my old LR4 with blizzaks, so time to get snow tires for the new one. I live in Denver, but most of the driving I'll be doing in the winter will be on highways that are plowed but have an inch or two of that weird slush / packed snow mix. Or just generally packed snow in town. I see...

    Reconciling Key Memory with Door Memory ?

    I happened across a 2016 Lux (with the seat memory feature on the door) and decided to pull the trigger. So I get comfy and program my seat/mirror settings into position #1. Great. The next time I drove it, I unlocked it from the FOB and I assume it must have moved into another set position...

    Anyone get parts from Suburban Auto Parts?

    Looks like these guys (www.suburbanautoparts.com) have slightly better prices than most of the online Land Rover parts places. Anyone have any positive or negative experiences to share? Thanks!

    Normal or chain noise?

    Seeing more and more people getting chains done. I have a 2012 with 80K, and just inside the supposedly affected range, so I'm thinking I should start keeping an eye on it. For those of you that have had the problem, I was hoping you could spare a minute and let me know if you think these are...

    2014 pre-wired for ACC? (Anyone remove their bumper)

    I see a number of people on the disco3 forum have successfully retrofitted adaptive cruise control to their MY 2015 and 2016s... I'm wondering if this is possible on earlier models as well... I'm curious if anyone with a 2014 has pulled off their bumper and, if so, if they have seen the...

    Smart Key Battery Low doesn't give much warning!

    Went camping this weekend. Friday afternoon after stopping for gas I got the message "Smart Key Battery Low." Figured not a big deal, I'll deal with it on Monday and have some of those batteries at home anyway. Sunday afternoon it was totally dead. Probably locked / unlocked less than a...

    Leaking crank seal on SCV6?

    Looking at a 2016 and had it inspected. Found a leak from crank seal. I've never heard of that being an issue on these cars. Something to worry about other issues down the road? Or just a weird fluke ?

    CPO warranty valuation?

    Possibly looking a super-low miles LR4 with the CPO warranty. Curious how you guys would place a value on the warranty to compare against other non-warrantied cars. $750/year of coverage? 1000/ year? I'm assuming its not going to cover wear items like control arms so kind of hit or miss...

    Little rubber bumper the top hatch comes down on?

    Anyone have a part # for the little rubber bumpers that sit on the lower tailgate and cushion the upper tailgate? I can't seem to locate these in any parts diagram online and it looks like one of them went missing... (pic is of lower tailgate switch, and you can see the empty hole)

    Here's a look I haven't seen before....

    Was just killing time surfing around and came across this.... I'm undecided... Might be more interesting if the roof was white as well... More pics here if anyone wants to look: http://www.wannaberacerwraps.com/land-rover-lr4-hse-gloss-black-top-half-vinyl-car-wrap Doing all of the...

    Adaptive headlights on 2010-2013 on with vision assist (surround cameras)

    *screwed up the thread title... Just to double-check, adaptive headlights on a 2013 would ONLY be with the vision assist package, and NOT on every "Lux", correct ? Topix lists it as just "XENON HEADLAMPS-NAS" Thanks!

    TOPIX no longer showing full build ?

    Weird, it looks like the "Minor Functions" feature (which showed all of the build options) doesn't show up anymore after entering a VIN. Anyone else seeing this ?

    Thoughts on Zanzibar?

    Looks very different depending on the picture. Is it a trendy orange or retiree bronze?

    D5 Diesel -- Warmup ? Reliability?

    Just drove one, considering this as a potential replacement for the LR4. Very different from the LR4, has some pluses and minuses. Just curious, for those of you in colder climates, how it is in terms of time until warm air is coming out of the vents ? My exposure to diesels is limited to a...

    Getting full manual from Topix

    So I've seen some of the "Workshop Manual" PDFs that appear to be printouts from the TOPIX system, but none of these are for my year. So I signed up for a brief TOPIX subscription, thinking I'd get access to the relevant one that way. But it looks like I can only print out very small...

    Parts Catalog / Diagrams websites?

    I owned a series of BMWs before getting the LR4 and there were some common parts websites were you could choose your year/model, choose a system, see diagrams of all the parts, zoom in, pick a component, see variations (e.g. this part # if the car had X option, another number if it had Y...

    Change Profile Name?

    Would it be possible to have my name changed to "Nechaken" ? Thanks!

    2014+ improvements / weak spots?

    Found a newer one with the locking rear diff and was thinking of replacing my 2012 with it. It looks like (compared to 2012) Updated timing guides / tensioners Updated Water pump (possibly) updated crossover pipe ? Any common failure points to look out for with the facelift ?

    Timing Chains / Crossover pipe resolved?

    Some of you may be familiar with these common failure points on the AJ V8 engine used in the LR4. Since the 3.0 V6 is largely based on the same block, I'm curious if anyone has experienced these failures on the D5?
